Hastie, DB & Wypych, PW, Experimental Investigation into Segregation of Bulk Solids During Gravity Filling of Storage Bins, In de Silva, E (Eds), International Symposium on Reliable Flow of Particulate Solids III, 1999, p 507-518, Telemark College, Norway.


This paper explains the phenomenon of segregation and previous methods used in its quantification. Also explained is the current research, which has attempted to develop a two dimensional sampling technique to quantify the degree of mixing present under gravity fill conditions. Binary mixtures have been prepared in varying proportions and charged into a test rig where sampling has taken place and the results analysed. From these results, a relationship between degree of mixing and product proportion has been developed.
